According to Wikipedia: "A degree is any of a wide range of status levels conferred by institutions of higher education, such as universities, normally as the result of successfully completing a program of study." High school is secondary education, not higher. It is not a degree, it is a diploma. I guess for some people it is an achievement but to be honest short of challenging personal circumstances (e.g. teenage pregnancy, financial difficulties) I don't think earning a high school diploma is any kind of achievement. Anyway I have a BA and an MSc, considering perhaps an MBA in a few years. Like to see so many other educated ladies!

Hmmm according to the English and French uni system, I have a BA, MA and MSc (the whole 3 years in England vs. 4 years in Scotland is a bit of a nightmare to translate on my CV), but in the US it's more like a BA and MSc. But I like to show off on my CV. :P

I have my BA in print journalism and will be working towards getting a MA in Consumer (merchandising) Education. Plus, I have a few certificates through my job for completing classes that gave me more "marketability".

I would count high school as a degree. There are plenty of people that DON'T have a high school education - why do you think the GED program exists? And there are so many families that struggle for children to complete high school, much less get them into college or through it - I think that's something to be celebrated; a lot of people take high school education for granted. Most states/school districts have certain course requirements in high school that must be fulfilled for completion, just like a degree plan in college. And all degrees GET diplomas. Anyway, besides high school, I have a BA in Psychology [minors in Biology and Philosophy - I love them!], and I'll be starting an MS program in Information (Social Computing specialization, I think) in the fall.

High school does mean something. Its better than having zero degrees when you apply for a job. I'm working toward my college degrees.

Not counting high school, I have one degree. BA in English, creative writing emphasis. I'm looking into starting on an MA program, but I think I'll give that a bit more time.

It doesn't mean anything if you graduate highschool -- it's MANDATORY for god sakes. hithatsmybike, you're wrong. in Maryland, compulsory attendance is only mandatory for children aged 5 - 16. If you drop out of high school at 16, your parents cannot be charged for truancy.
